Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Re: What was your musical journey to the Dead ... and afterlife ?

for what it's worth, what I can remember went something like this...

AM radio > Beatles (1963) > Dylan (1965) > folkies (Peter Paul & Mary, Joan Baez, Donovan, Tom Rush, Judy Collins, Joni Mitchell) > Cream (1967, Disraeli Gears) > CSN (1969) > Dead (1970, Workingman's Dead / American Beauty, and the other albums through Wake of the Flood)

Although I've enjoyed lots of other music since then and gone through long periods of not listening to any music at all, nothing else ever touched me so deeply or so consistently over the decades. I want the Dead played at my funeral someday.
